When did pulse go to Adelaide? Gotta love the concrete/steel telegraph poles though.

And why do South Australians call them "stobies" instead of telegraph poles?

Yeah I'm pretty upset by binning my ferrari. I guess you can't win all your battles, especially not with 50 foot high steel reinforced poles.

Oh well, easy come, easy go. Got my lambo on order now.

A Stobie pole is a power line pole made of two steel joists held apart by a slab of concrete in the middle. It was invented by Adelaide Electricity Supply Company design engineer James Cyril Stobie (1895-1953). He used the materials easily at hand due to the shortage of timber caused by the arid and treeless nature of much of South Australia. His invention of two spare pieces of railway track bolted together with concrete in the middle was patented in 1924.
